Normally in the "razor close" decisions, I can find a way to see the judges side of the story... ala Griffin/Jackson... Machida/Shogun 1... etc. However, this was NOT a razor close decision.

Not one time did Henderson have Frankie on the ropes. He was never close to a submission, and he never knocked him down or even rocked him if my memory serves. Frankie however did both a couple of times. I just don't see how this can be justified in anyway.

I'm looking forward to watching Nate become the first man to submit Henderson. By that time Frankie should get another shot, cause after that Robbery he should only need one win to get back in the picture.

I can tell who won this fight. It sucked real bad.

McCall, Faber, Aldo, Nate, Nick, Lyoto, TBD, Hunt
Forever hanging in Anderson Silva nuts

I thought Edgar won 4 of the rounds. The rounds were razor close as neither fighter really did much damage but Henderson didn't do much of anything. Edgar was the aggressor and out stuck Henderson for the most part. I also scored the first fight for Edgar but that one I thought could've been scored either way this fight I think the judges made a bad call.

I haven't watched it again yet but i clearly remember Edgar winning perhaps 4 rounds and outworking, outstriking Benson. Benson only had success with the kicks in the beginning, after he got rocked in the 2nd, Frankie did an amazing job defending and catching the kicks.

Frankie pressed the action, got a few takedowns, a few submission attempts, outstruck him. He won that fight in my book.

I don't like Edgar because during his title reign the division has been at a standstill for nearly two years, and I also don't believe he should have gotten this rematch since he was clearly beaten in the first one. Yet I still scored this fight in his favor 48-47.

I think Bendo got the first and fifth rounds while Edgar got the other three. Almost all of the rounds were razor thin but I gave the second and fourth to Frankie due to positioning and aggressiveness while executing some really effective counter punching and movement.

While I believe Frankie won I'm more happy with this outcome in a way, I hate seeing a guy get screwed in a decision but now we get some new blood in the title picture and the division can get moving again.

For me, this was justice. I absolutely can't stand Frankie Edgars fighting style, like really can't stand it.

I find his style to be tediously boring and predictable. Bounce around for 2 minutes, dart in, land a school boy 1-2 combo, dart back out. Rinse and repeat for 5 rounds.

I hate his points style of fighting and I'm truly glad he lost, especially after his moaning after the first fight where he got beaten down the entire fight.

Did Frankie win this fight? Probably, but again, he was boring doing so and I'm glad he didn't get the official win.

Maybe this will egg him on to actually start sitting down on his punches and being much more aggressive in his future fights, instead of leaping in and scoring points. But probably not.

As for going for Frankie and his point fighting.. He wasn't the only one competing in the fight and actually managed to knock down Benson, sth he failed to do against Frankie. Fact is Frankie threw moore shots, landed more shots and had more success with the shots.

...Edgar, like B.J. twice, couldn't put Bendo away. There are some big fireworks coming soon in the LW division. Cerrone's impressive crushing of Guillard puts him in contender position. I believe the man to beat is Anthony Pettis. He is a lightning rod for the title. Joe Silva must be licking his chops with the huge potential match-ups that can happen soon in arguably the most talent stacked UFC division...

I like watching someone get beat up and outstruck while still getting the win on the scorecards as well. Makes total sense.

I had it R1 Henderson, R2 Frankie (both clearly) other 3 were close but I give them to Frankie. So yeah, I think Edgar won and am gutted for him. At least one judge got it right.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig
